For the first time since starting Spec Rec, I wanted to recommend a lot more stories and poems than I could fit on two pages. To get to the final 11, I had to re-read some pieces several times and in the end, it just came down to what I like reading the most at the moment. I still plan on doing other great things with the ones that didn’t make the cut.
Nature and gods are what defines most of the recommendations from February. Another short story and poem from Apparition Lit’s justice issue are on this list because it’s just that good and although it was technically published in January, the chosen pieces were only made available on their website last month. I also have an anthology to recommend.
